Pesto Veggie Farro Power Bowl

This recipes involves 2 of my favorite ingredients: pesto + goat cheese! I’ve always loved this flavor combination so I threw together a recipe that did just that! This recipe will give you a good dose of fiber from the vegetables and farro and it’s a great recipe to pack for lunch the following day. Also, who doesn’t love a recipe that can be prepared from start to finish in 30 minutes? Your taste buds will be happy and so will your belly.
